Cheryl finally ‘responds’ to X Factor backlash: ‘She can’t stop watching it’

‘Devastated’ Cheryl reportedly can’t stop re-watching her panned comeback performance.

The singer copped it on Sunday night, with fans claiming her raunchy X Factor antics – which saw her lick her own hand and crawl suggestively across the stage – were too x-rated for a family show.

Others took aim at her singing, with some accusing her of being out of tune.

"Not sure if it’s the sound or she just can’t sing, but this sounds bad," sniped one viewer.

"Cheryl licking her hand tattoo is about as appealing as this performance/song," added another.

A third said: "I just don’t understand? Cheryl? Can she even sing? … bizzaare"
